"The City Records Center in downtown Los Angeles is an immense 
repository where 150 years' worth of city documents is held. 
Amid the 47,500 square feet of cardboard crates filled with paperwork 
and other bureaucratic detritus lies a vast collection of photographs 
taken by Los Angeles police officers and criminologists. 
Many of these images come from the Special Investigations Division, 
the nation's oldest crime lab, which was established in the 1920s. 
It is estimated that there are over one million images in storage."
